Javier Couso, the brother of José Couso, is visiting from Madrid as part of the “Break the Impunity” tour traveling the US calling for an independent investigation into whether journalists were deliberately targeted by the US military.

"Our aim is to bring to the American people and their representatives the facts of my brother’s murder and seek their solidarity in our pursuit of truth and justice, as these are values that are central to any free and democratic society." -- Javier Couso
